Our Island, Our Future

Notice From CalMac Ferries- Islanders Essential Travel Only

Official Statement from CalMac Ferries

The First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has announced today, Sunday 22 March 2020, that ferry travel across Scotland must be for essential travel only.

From now on ferries will be for those who live on our islands, who have an essential need to travel to or from the mainland, and for essential supplies or business.  Nothing else. The return of non-residents from islands back to the mainland will also be deemed essential travel. 

If you have already bought or booked a ticket but your travel is not essential, then you should not be travelling, and you must contact us for a refund.

We expect the travelling public will listen to this new guidance to keep everyone of us as safe as possible
